After it became clear in the Sundowns game that Chiefs lacked a proper number 9 who can hold up play and give them a focal point, there had been recent rumors that they were considering signing a striker.

The Glamour Boys had been connected to Bonfils-Caleb Bimenyimana, a striker from Burundi.

Meanwhile, the team announced this afternoon that they have hired him on a deal through 2024, with an additional year's option. He signs a Bosman contract to join the Chiefs (free transfer).

The 28-year-old originally spent a few weeks training at Chiefs' renowned Naturena facilities in the hopes of landing a contract, but was released after the technical team wasn't completely sold on his ability.

And given that the Chiefs have gone more than seven years without winning a significant prize, they will need more target men than just Ashley Du Preeze and Bimenyimana.
